Picayune Sears store gets a makeover

At Sears Hometown and Outlet Store's grand reopening celebration in Picayune on Friday and Saturday, customers will receive an additional 10 percent discount off almost everything in the store.

Appliances will occupy more than half of the sales floor of the newly designed store at 781 Memorial Blvd.

Three kitchen vignettes were added in the new floor plan, providing space to display four-piece kitchens from a number of brands. Another new feature is a designated laundry-innovation area that showcases several brands and appliance features so customers can see the differences in product lines.

At a new touchscreen kiosk, customers can work with a salesperson or browse on their own to review product options or make purchases.

The Picayune store is part of a system-wide refresh of all Sears Hometown Stores. The company began updating them in 2015 and has nearly 275 "America's Appliance Experts" locations across the United States.
